round hatch

Hello Perry, I just finished installing a 4" Beckson deck plate in my Mainstream Jazz which is no big deal but I wanted a dry and secure place to put my keys, wallet, cellphone, etc. As it turns out, a large plastic peanut butter jar will just fit under the screw out deck plate lid. I attached the lid to the deck plate lid with a single screw into the provided screw mount in the deck plate. I did back the jaw lid with a piece of styrofoam just to fill out the back of the deck plate. It works great and I still have access to the interior of my boat.

Thanks again for a great website.

~ What a cool idea. This is just one of the things I love about this sport, each in our own ways we customize our kayaks to fit our uses. Keep up the good work and please keep us updated on your rigging! PerryC. ~
